"Can someone please ask Al Gore to turn the global warming back on?"
I heard that on the Rick and Bubba show either yesterday or today (no thanks to WLAC, mind you...).
It's been frigid of late in middle Tennessee and much of the United States and now, there are predictions of snow for tonight and tomorrow. Of course, this has set off the usual Tennessee tradition of rushing to the grocery store to hoard as much bread and milk as humanly possible. I'm still not quite sure why anyone thinks that four inches will trap them so long that they need six gallons of milk and seven loaves of bread. It also makes me wonder if milk sandwiches are really all that tasty.
I've already seen snow in the form of flurries a couple of times this winter and I have to admit that part of me would like to see some snow accumulation this time around. As long as I don't have to drive in it.
I'm also intrigued by TDOT's new use of beet juice as a way to de-ice roadways. As someone who despises eating beets, any way to keep them off my plate and doing something good is fine by me....
